Architecture and design

15 Hudson Yards is designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Rockwell Group and Ismael Leyva Architects and will feature straps along the middle and top part of the building to make it more "fluid-like". The tower's nickname, the Corset Tower, owes to its unique appearance; the straps along the tower create a "corset-like" appearance. Structural engineering performed by WSP Cantor Seinuk.

The tower will be integrated with the Culture Shed. Scheduled to open in the spring of 2018, Culture Shed will host activities in a wide range of cultural areas including art, performance, film, design, food, fashion, and new combinations of cultural content.

Occupancy

The tower is to contain 325 rental apartment units and 160 for-sale apartments. Additionally, it is intended that Equinox Fitness will open a location inside the building. The building is expected to have 458 residential apartments by its completion, meaning that 27 apartments will not be residential.
